here’s a new lesson developing for those who insist on a politically correct world.
According to a new report at RedState.com, the University of Richmond has “canceled” a figure who was trustee of the school back in the 1800s.
Thomas C. Williams attended there in the 1940s, later to become trustee.
When he died, his family made a major donation to establish a law school, and when the school became the University of Richmond in 1920, it named the school the T.C. Williams School of Law.
However, school board members now have changed the name to the University of Richmond School of Law, with President Kevin Hallock explaining the school recognizes the “family” but, the report said, tax records show the donor’s tobacco business owned 25 to 40 slaves.
School policy now states, “No building, program, professorship, or other entity at the university should be named for a person who directly engaged in the trafficking and/or enslavement of others or openly advocated for the enslavement of people.”
